Unity Stamps for February Double Duty

On the 22nd of each month some friends challenge ourselves to create 2 different cards repeating the same image, sentiment, etc on each card.  We have a predetermined list of the stamp company or specific challenge for each month and then...away we go!

This month we feature any stamp set by Unity Stamp Compapny and I decided to go their "The Owl & the Moon" stamp set.  As Gramma D in my other life, it's pretty obvious why I bought this set!

I had big plans for this card...but at the last minute I made a decision that didn't work out. 

I stenciled the stars using Simon Hurley's "Slippery When Wet" Lunar Paste and loved the result. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold. So far, so good.

I colored the image with blending brushes and inks, masking off different sections as I went along.

Then the bad decision. I decided to use the Lunar paste on the moon. I am not happy at all with my results.

The second card was colored with markers, using "Twinkle" Stickles on the moon.  There's a random piece of leftover DP for the background panel, but I have no clue what company to credit.

I consider these two cards my practice cards before Gramma D makes something worthy of her Little Man!  As Gina K famously says, "They're better than horrible".  But just barely, hahahaha

That is one fabulous image and sentiment combination Darlene, and I love all the shimmer and shine on the first card
